Review of the bookmaker Kwikbet from Legalbet

Kwikbet is owned and run by Solami Limited, a Kenyan based company. Currently, the online betting platform claims to have over 85,000 users and it comes as no surprise they have gotten so much patronage. Given their extensive markets and how easy it is to use the website, it is expected that the site would gain that much traction. In no distant time, this betting company will grow to become a strong force in the betting industry in Kenya. Their operations are licenses by the Betting Control and Licensing Board of Kenya with license number BK0000192.

Odds — normal

We calculated the margin for Kwikbet by analysing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Good value

Over 5% to 7%: Average value

Over 7% to 10%: Poor value

Football

We’re getting our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the total goals scored for different football leagues. By getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and also the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

Kwikbet has an overall margin of 6.82% for football and falls in the average value category. In the first section using odds from the English Premier League, the margin is at 5.69%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, has a margin of 6.53%. Finally, by counting the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa, the margin is at 8.24%.

Betting options — good

Kwikbet is a relatively new online betting platform that is fast gaining ground in Kenya.

Range of Sports: It is of great importance for a bookie to accommodate as much sports as possible. This is because, as a bookie, you are trying to satisfy a broad range of users with peculiar interests. With a website that has it all, everyone is happy because they have something to wager on.

Kwikbet is not found lacking in this regard. As at the time of this review, they have on offer over 16 different sports. For an online betting platform, that's fair enough. Punters can get to wager on popular sports like football, tennis, basketball and not so popular sports like snooker, water polo, darts and many more.

Kwikbet also has a virtual section for those who might be interested. However, they only have six different virtual games on their sportsbook and that could be a let-down.

One exciting option Kwikbet has for its customers is a big jackpot prize to be won. The Omoka jackpot sees bettors try to battle for a grand prize of KSH 500,000.00 by predicting the outcome of nine games correctly. The winning prize is shared between the customers with the most wins and correct predictions on that occasion.

On the other hand, Casino lovers may find this website unimpressive as there is nothing for them to be excited about here.

Talking about being unique, Kwikbet has one feature that’s rare. FPL has become popular among football lovers all over the world and Kwikbet tried to tap into this. They have an FPL league available for all registered users on their site to participate in.

The competition is only open to people who have attained the age of 18 years and above and are active customers on Kwikbet. The winner of the month will receive prizes that will be based on the ranking on the official FPL table. In case of a tie, the prize will be shared among FPL managers. If there are any cash prizes won, they will be credited into the managers’ Kwikbet accounts.

The site features impressive colour themes - purple, yellow, black and white - that helps with the overall aesthetics of the website. 

Range of Bets and Markets: Kwikbet easily rivals others in the sport betting industry in Kenya, considering how much betting options there are available on the platform. As at the time of this review, there were over 1000 betting markets for premier league games in football. That's very rare to find with other betting sites.

This is exciting for football lovers, since they are spoilt with options to puck from. That's like every punter's dream. On the sport category, you get to see special options like "Penalty home", "Multi correct score", "1st goal method", "score in first 20 min", "score in first 10 min" and a whole lot of other amazing options.

The distribution of betting options across the different sports is uneven. So, for other sports, there's a need to add more options to come close to football events.

Betting limits: The kind of money that can be placed on a bet should be enough for almost everyone. Though, like you’d expect, the limits are getting a cut on lower leagues as it's the case almost everywhere nowadays.

Live — normal

The live betting is a feature that allows punters to wager on markets even after the event has started.

In this case, the punter is betting from an informed perspective aided by the live updates given. It could sometimes prove to be a breath of fresh air to the usual pre-match betting.

Kwikbet allows for a highly responsive live betting system and more important is the fact that they make the live betting option available for various sport categories.

However, they can do better by offering more sports to go with. As at the time of this review, they have only football, tennis, ice Hockey, volleyball and basketball available for live betting.

They can surely do better here as some bookies easily offer more than double that number. While they are lagging a bit in number of sports offered, they have well stacked options for the few ones available.

Taking football into consideration, they have about 70+ options for each game on live betting and that is rather impressive given the standard among bookmakers in Kenya.

Surprisingly, or not, they don’t have the live streaming feature available yet and we can imagine they will add this to their growing updates in due time. Instead, it uses its scoreboard in order to let players know what’s up with the game, although the info included is on the poor side having only the time, the score, the corners and the bookings.
